On 29 april NASO participated in a webinar on “Strengthening the European Security Network: The role of the European Pillar of Social Rights and Reconstruction”. Leading topics in the online dialogue included social protection, access to employment, care and well-being for the population, and expectations for the Porto Summit.
The Deputy Director General of the Department for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion in the European Commission, Ms. Andriyana Sukova, took a special part in the online dialogue. The meeting was attended by EASPD Secretary General Luk Zelderloo and political analyst Laura Raynor and others.
During the discussion, data from a March 2021 Eurobarometer survey were discussed, according to which nine out of ten Europeans consider social policies in Europe to be paramount and that they should offer equal opportunities and access to the labor market, as well as fair conditions for labor and social protection.
